    What book are you reading now?

    I am reading The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch. It is a very good mystery set in the late 1600's.

    Got fabric?

    The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, Fools's Puzzle by Earlene Fowler, the Rodwell Files (a bridge book), You Believers by Jane Bradley, Swamplandia by Karen Russell. Quilt pattern books don't count as reading, do they?
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Eat Pray Love. by Elizabeth Gilbert
    Reading on my iPad
    If you have a reading device, check with your local library if they have access to the state library system for downloading media. I do not buy books.

    Summer Rental by Mary Kay andrews - started yesterday morning and finished last night. Obviously could not put down. Just plan "girls" fun book.
    Roam by Alex Lazar - Tear jerker but happy ending dog book. I was afraid it was going to be depressing but it was great. And I'm not a big dog lover.

    Lindsey Davis - Nemesis (Falco series)

    Just finished:
    Christopher Fowler - Off the rails (Bryant and May series)
    Bernard Knight - Crowner John Mysteries (excellent and highly recommended)
    M C Beaton - Hamish McBeth and Agatha Raisin Series

    Starting later in the week:
    C J Sansom - Shardlake Series

    Just to say I have had a Kindle since the summer. I put off buying one because I wasn't sure whether I would get on with it. What a mistake! I LOVE my kindle and wouldn't be without it now.

    I, also, just finished Off the Rails! Bryant & May

    I finished The Black Cat by Martha Grimes. Am reading Out of the Dark by David Weber...it's SF. Have four mysteries by G. M. Malliet to read - St. Just series and the first book in the Max Tudor series. Just downloaded an Elizabeth Chadwick historical book only to find out it's the 2nd in a trilogy...so gotta hunt down the first book. That's means a trip to Half-Price Books...and that ain't a bad thing! Kinda like going to the fabric store....

    The Bible in the book of Matthew; Healing with Humor by Charles Hunter; The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas; The Adventures of Marco Polo by Marco Polo; The Tempest by Wm Shakespeare; and a couple of audio books while I sew. I read so many books depending on where I am and what I am engaged in.

    Just started "The Cat, the Quilt, and the Corpse" by Leann Sweeney. It was a free download to my Kindle. So far, it is light reading, but good! I think it is one of a series.

    Just finishing Jan Karon's These High, Green Hills...third in the Mitford Series...light read next on the stack is Alice Hoffman's The Doverkeepers -- looked interesting anyone read this one? Between cooking, cleaning, quilting and reading ---some days I have a difficult time choosing... :-)
    I so enjoy knowing what others are reading and make a list from their suggestions... Thanks a lot

    I'm of the woo-woo variety and reading a vampire series by JR Ward - Lover Unleashed.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
